On Tuesday, December 13, during the Lehi City Council meeting, city staff released the first look at the speed of the new citywide fiber network and price options.
The citywide multimillion-dollar project is currently being constructed, with the first storage shelter locations already built and the lines being laid soon. The City released the first phase map a few months ago and will be starting around the City Hall area.
There have been 6,330 household pre-registrations so far, and residents may still pre-register for the service at https://lehi.fibertomycity.com/ with no cost or obligation to purchase the service when available in your area.
The five internet service providers (ISP) that will be available are:
• BEEHIVE Broadband
The newly released speeds and rates that will be offered are:
250 Mbps: $64.95 – $66.00
1 Gbps: $76.95 – $80.00
2 Gbps: $99.00 – $100.00
10 Gbps: $199.95 – $227.00
Each ISP will offer specific pricing. Speed option availability will vary by carrier, but all five providers will offer at least the 250 Mbps and 1 Gbps options.
Residents who qualify for government assistance like WIC or free and reduced lunch may also be eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).
